I left home for Brockport as an 18-year-old determined to get into journalism, though at the time I still wasn’t 100 percent sure I was going to focus on writing. My first week I covered a women’s soccer game for The Stylus and haven’t looked back since, despite being yelled at in front of the team that first day.
Wasn’t the first time, and it surely won’t be the last.
Since then I’ve written too many words to count, attended too many games to count and ticked off too many people to count. As a sophomore I joined the editorial staff as a copy editor, where fellow Stylus-ers and friends Olivia and Caitlin had planned out the rest of my Stylus career.
It went exactly as they’d planned and I became editor-in-chief my senior year, a tumultuous time and one I will always be proud of.
Along with various clips on the accompanying drop-down pages, I’ve included pieces written about The Stylus as background to outside scrutiny and controversy.
